John Roberts astro chart, Feminists and Racism = a Pro Abortion volley

Assuming he will be confirmed, transiting Pluto will be conjunct Roberts' Ceres in 2007-2008, by which time he may become the swing vote when the Supreme Court re-visits Roe v. Wade.~tarot.com

odd, Searching Under His Robes = conservo judge/clerk gosswhore but good links

ok yeah his wife is a Feminist for Life...
In 2001, she was identified as the “FFL board counsel,” and in the Summer 2002 FFL quarterly, The American Feminist, Roberts is listed as a member of the “Elizabeth Cady Stanton Circle” of fundraisers, who have raised between $1,000-$2,499 for the organization.

and from the FFL president in response to attacks:
...since those who first defined the movement, British feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, early American feminist Susan B. Anthony, founder of the Seneca Falls Convention, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and author of the Equal Rights Amendment, Alice Paul, all opposed abortion on the basis of civil rights and as an exploitation of women.

Hmmm. Interesting t…

Pataki in '08!?

From Jeanette Walls'...Looks like George Pataki may be ready for a change of scenery. New York’s governor will announce by Labor Day that he won’t run for re-election, a source familiar with the situation tells The Scoop. What are his plans? “Well, he’s in Iowa right now,” says the insider. “And I’ll tell you this: he isn’t running for mayor of Iowa.” . . .

Ah, jeez...well maybe he could do it, being a decent mix of liberal and conservative AND he's not hated TOO much. Wouldn't it be funny and bitingly ironic if he won with Hilary as VP?
Either way I would advise Pataki to keep chanting "Teddy Roosevelt" under his breath...

Ok, so maybe God DOES have it out for the Boy Scouts afterall

Someone recently asked "Why Does God Hate the Boy Scouts?" and I kinda just shook my head...now even I'm beginning to wonder if karmic goodness is still something that can move the world to action, just as much as divine retributions.

Boy Scouts Deal With Death and Extreme Heat
By MICHAEL FELBERBAUM, AP
BOWLING GREEN, Va. (July 28) - The Boy Scouts marched onto the field singing, plopping down in the grass to wait for President Bush. But hours later, the news that Bush couldn't make it was drowned out by sirens and shouts as hundreds fell ill because of the blistering heat.

Anyone else noticed MJ's increasing popularity with Black America since his verdict?

Missy Elliott wants to give Michael Jackson
an extreme makeover. “I would give him some thugged-out braids, a
wife-beater, a pair of jeans, and penny loafers,” the rapper tells the
August issue of Spin. “I’d bring him back on some next-level kind of
flavor.” . . . .

Details on a new troublemaker, plus other scoop, is trickling in for Veronica Mars fans. Our guy at the San Diego Comic-Con reports in that Angel alumna Charisma Carpenter's character will be "a bitch in a bikini," as a sexy stepmother to brothers Dick and Beaver Casablancas. Also, in the second-season premiere, look for Keith to appear on Larry King's show to promote his book about Lilly's murder. And as for Veronica herself, well, let's just say that since she's back hanging with th…

Johnny Depp is disputing reports he modeled Willy Wonka on Michael Jackson. “It never entered my mind,” Depp said, according to World Entertainment News Network. “Michael Jackson loves children, but Willy Wonka doesn’t.” Depp’s actual inspirations were Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Rogers. “There were memories I have as a little kid watching children’s shows and children show hosts,” Depp said. “I distinctly remember thinking their speech pattern was strange.” ~MSNBC

Once, at a convention of astronomers, James Doohan was asked what it felt like "to be beamed." The actor who'd abided by the order, "Beam me up, Scotty," countless times on the Star Trek set reported that it was "very pleasurable." "
You end up beaming all over the place," Doohan said, per StarTrek.com.

Sometime we just don't talk about the things we really should be discussing.

Darfur for instance.

Why not tell some of your local tv stations to start broadcasting on the situation?

Another Buffyverse alum has landed on Veronica Mars. Angel's Charisma Carpenter
is joining the Emmy-worthy drama this fall as a sexy trophy wife and
stepmother to brothers Dick and Beaver Casablancas — a role you first
read about in Ask Ausiello. She'll appear in at least six episodes.

Ninety pct of DVR users skip TV ads - new study

By Adam Pasick
Tue Jul 12,11:23 AM ET

TV advertisers are facing a potential disaster as more consumers buy digital video recorders (DVRs), according to a new study, since about 90 percent of current users fast-forward through ads.

The trends are even more foreboding among the 18 to 34-year-old demographic most coveted by marketers, with 97 percent saying they skip ads all or almost all of the time.

"This has always been advertisers' biggest fear," said Sarah Wade, a London-based account manager for the French market research firm Ipsos, which carried out a survey of 4,000 British TV households.

Really cool Goddess Study please pass along

"The Positive Benefits of Goddess Spirituality."
"...The single gender focus on women only is a means of restricting the size and magnitude of a study. Primarily the study is about the positive benefits that women experience in honoring a Goddess in their spiritual path of choice. I have come to realize that many of the questions I pose to women would not be appropriate for a study with men. Questions such as improvements of body image and others just do not have the same meaning for men. The single gender research issue will be addressed appropriately in the results and discussion sections of my dissertation.

I am seeking women 18 or older, who read and write English, honor a Goddess in their spiritual path of choice and are willing to complete a 10-20 minute survey on the Web..."

HEART ATTACK IDLES FAITHFULL
From the NY Post's Page Six
A RECENT heart attack cost Marianne Faithfull a plum role in a new screen adaptation of Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray."

Faithfull — the razor-voiced rock goddess and style icon of '60s Britain — is doing fine, her friends say.

But according to prickly Brit filmmaker Duncan Roy, Faithfull, 58 — infamous for being Mick Jagger's one-time lover-muse and writer of the Rolling Stones' classic "As Tears Go By" — was forced to decline the role of the countess in the director's just-wrapped adaptation of Wilde's story, set in New York City.

"Marianne really wanted to do it but had to pull out at the last moment," Roy tells PAGE SIX. "[Her manager and boyfriend] Francoise Ravard told me she had a slight heart attack. She's fine now." Ravard did not return e-mails. Faithfull's William Morris agent was unable to reach her at press time.

Blog of Idaho Suspect Mentions Minn. Girl

MINNEAPOLIS - The convicted sex offender accused of kidnapping two
children in Idaho wrote about a missing Minnesota girl on his Weblog,
and investigators are now looking into whether he might have had
anything to do with her disappearance.

Yes! Finally people might note that reality tv is SCRIPTED!

Reality TV writers claim Calif. labor law breaches LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A dozen writers who work in the booming arena of "reality" television have sued networks and production companies for what they say are violations of California labor law governing overtime wages and meal breaks.

Leonardo DiCaprio has hired Sahara screenwriter James V. Hart and his son, Jake, to adapt the Kurt Vonnegut classic Cat's Cradle for his production company. In the novel, there's a big race for a new form of ice. Or, as I like to call it, daiquiris. - TV Guide Online

Of course Leo did serve as producer for The Aviator, and supposedly he's a film freak in the most intellectual of senses...so maybe it'll actually be quite good.

I never saw Sahara, anyone know if it's any good?

Vonnegut RULES!

Lil Kim Goes Down...and not in a good way.

After handing down his sentence Wednesday, Judge Lynch blamed the vicious cycle of lies and secrecy in the hip-hop community for Wallace's unsolved murder. It was a stinging rebuke to his former lover.

"The man is dead," the judge said forcefully. "Someone killed him and it's because people do what you did that we still don't know who killed him."

it's all going to end in tears Katie...

KEEPING AN EYE ON KATIE
SINCE Katie Holmes hooked up with Tom Cruise and the Scientologists, she's not allowed to be alone - ever. When Holmes accompanied Cruise to a recent taping of "The View," eyebrows were raised when she wasn't allowed to go to the bathroom alone. At one point, Cruise asked where the bathroom was and "took Katie with him into the men's room," an insider says. Later, when Holmes needed to go, "three Scientologists followed her in." A rep for "The View" said, "We don't follow guests to the bathroom." Some were also concerned because Holmes "looks like she hasn't slept in weeks."
